    7 Tips For a Successful Phone Interview

    September 12, 2018

    Congratulations! You’ve been working with a recruiter and they’ve helped to secure a phone interview for you for a great job. Now what? Many times, the first step in the interview process is a telephone interview or “phone screen.” This typically is a brief 20-30 minute meeting conducted via telephone. Phone screens are a convenient way to break the ice between candidate and hiring manager in a low-pressure setting. You can get a feel for the role and company and the hiring manager can get an overview of your skills to see if it makes sense to move on to the next step in the hiring process.
